What started out as a small show with just 5 performers in November 2008, Scandals Saloon’s Gospel Jubilee has become one of the premier events held in Florida on the last Sunday of each month. Headlined by The Lady Fancy, Gospel Jubilee has evolved into a true ministry celebrating old fashioned southern gospel music. Starting promptly at 6 pm, the standing room only crowd at Scandals enjoys a 2-3 hour show with non-stop music performed by the best of local entertainers. Each show begins with the original cast in choir robes and tambourines. Lady Fancy then announces, as she has every show, “… we are here to celebrate gospel music and in no way are here to make fun of the music or religion. If you are here thinking this will happen, you will be sorely disappointed …”

 

A full stage now occupies an area of the dance floor with a magnificent stained glass backdrop. The cast has as many as fifteen performers and includes their version of The Happy Goodman Family and The Spear Family. From the very first number to the last, Gospel Jubilee will lift your spirit and leave you with the feeling you have truly experienced a church of a different kind. Who could not feel good as The Happy Goodman’s perform “Looking for a City,” an inspiring song with the congregation waving napkins in the air?

 

“When owners Ken Kelley and Lloyd Pagels started this show there were a few critics. There were questions such as, “How can you possibly build a show of just gospel music in a gay bar?” Their answer? Ken says, ” Why not? If you believe in a higher power then you have to know that power is present in all walks of life and in all venues.”

 

To make this second year anniversary even more special, Gospel Jubilee will introduce the debut of Lady Fancy on the piano, accompanied by Danny Larrimore singing some very special gospel hymns. As with all the songs, you are more than welcome to lift up your voice in song as well.

 

“We are truly blessed to mark the second anniversary of Gospel Jubilee and to welcome all to this amazing show. Whether you are a believer or not, when you leave this show you will know the true joy of having experienced something very unique and very special.”
